This looks an awful lot like something I was working on just 2 weeks ago:


It is, however, something different. This is the front of the Apres Surf Hoodie that I cast on last night. The back is done but not yet blocked. The front is coming along quickly; again, memorizing the stitch pattern is a great help in picking up the pace. I can knit up to the neckline on the bus, adding more than an hour of knitting time to this project each day than I’d have just working on it at home in the evenings.

Alas, the hat now looks like this:


I ran short of yarn for finishing the top, so I’ll need to cast on with fewer stitches and give it another run.
